The Marais is a historic neighborhood located in the heart of Paris. Its history traces back to antiquity when the surrounding areas were marshes and wetlands. During the medieval period, the district developed into a center for commerce and culture, with churches, abbeys, and mansions.
In subsequent centuries, the Marais went through various transformations. In the 17th century, it became home to aristocratic residences, many private mansions, and palaces. During the French Revolution, it witnessed significant historical events, including the storming of the Bastille in 1789... After being less prominent in the 19th century, the Marais became, in the early 20th century, a popular area for artists and writers, with a bohemian community emerging around Rue des Rosiers.
Today, the Marais is vibrant and cosmopolitan, hosting numerous shops, restaurants, and art galleries. It remains a place of great historical and cultural importance, with many tourist sites, museums, and monuments.
Our Marais workshops are located just steps away from the iconic Place des Vosges, known for its unique architecture and historical significance. Here, we've aimed for a simple yet elegant style, complemented by classic or modern artworks, an authentic herbarium, and an antique map of Paris, reflecting our love for art, nature, and the city!
